The usual four. Got it******How does Kate get away with this? She is blatantly disobeying a court order for visitation. Is it her duty to produce the kids for visitation, or ask them what their whims are?What if everyone did this with their custody?And how is it OK for Kate to ask if the kids want to go to Jon's, but it's not OK for the kids to stay with Jon when they don't want to go home?How is it that Kate calls the cops on Jon and accuses him of kidnapping when the shoe is on the other foot?Jon has to spend his custody time TO THE LETTER, and Kate just gets to wing it.Eh, you don't wanna go? OK, you're not going.Huh?
What if everyone did this with their custody?And how is it OK for Kate to ask if the kids want to go to Jon's, but it's not OK for the kids to stay with Jon when they don't want to go home?&&&GOOD POINT!If she's taking the position that I'm honoring the children's wishes, then why didn't she just accept it when Hannah didn't want to return to her? Jon probably asked her who's going to mommy's! And she said not me. So, respect it, Doofus.Instead she called the cops no less than three times and stalked around outside his house like a crazy pants, probably scaring the poor child out of her mind. You can't have it both ways. Either they're going to produce the children for their respective custodial time (as is the law), or they're going to honor their wishes (and break the law, but whatever).

Comment on Yahoo:Avatar Shaggy 21 minutes agoPennsylvania is a terrible state for father's rights. If a mom wants to alienate children she can fairly easily, and people in their town know what she has been doing to Jon for years.

As a producer (laughing up my sleeve), she should have contacted TLC and had them edit this bit of bullshit out technically, because it aired, couldn't she be held in contempt?? I'll also be watching DWTS and will be rooting for James. He's been great al season and his dance last night was wonderful.
I guess the almost total lack of interest on Twitter in the #TweetParty (except for the #OldFaithfuls, as one diehard fan named their group) means Milo must get to communicatin' in other ways.Fired Up 4 Kate @MiloandJack 46s46 seconds ago@Kateplusmy8 DMAnd look who's popped up out of the sludge?

So I wonder what the time frame is for that van scene? Was it the week before H decided to stay at Jon's? Hehe
Here's a comment that was just left on the K8 FB page. This shows how deeply ingrained the fiction invented by TLC and K8 has become for the average American. The lies and deception that have been perpetrated here are just sick.XXXXX Kate choose not to ask Jon for help so for the people that think she is a single parent is just not including Jon at allXXXXX He left her for a young girl! Then continued to date like crazy! He became very irresponsible and doesn't support the kids!Did you know he also signed signs his rights as a parent ! Very sad right! At least some of the kids still care and visit him but he really messed up and Kate cannot trust him or ask him for help

If there is a "usual four" then why bother to ask the question? She is so transparent.******Utterly transparent. As usual, Kate does damage control through her fake show.
I took a look at the commenters on her IG account because she's got an unusually large number of them tonight. Most are private accounts which is a sign that she's buying accounts and comments.
Just one more comment, I promise!"JamesJames12 seconds agoWhy don't they just stuff the kids into a cannon and shoot them at each other?"LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!

I really think that with all the chatter and publicity about sending Collin away, the ratings will be up. I hope that I am wrong about that, but...
@Sad but true Does anyone really believe Kate private messages fans like milo?I really wonder what Gladys Dms kate about.I don't know if Kate responds to any of it.Just because Milo has tweeted about DMing to her many times doesn't mean it proves Kate responds.How many times has milo cried to Kate whenever something in her life happens(like her car breaking down) and Kate never responds?I don't see Kate caring about anything unless she does tell them things about Jon or the kids.
Why don't they stuff KATE into a cannon and shoot her into outer space, never to be seen again?******Brilliant!
Susie - I agree that the ratings may be up initially but I don't think she can sustain them for long. SSDY.
Fired Up 4 Kate @MiloandJack 13m13 minutes agoEveryone is singing #Anticipation here! #TLC has been making us wait. Now the wait is over! #KatePlus8 is back tonite! 10pm @kateplusmy8With Milo, is this just a case of being deep into celebrity worship, or does anyone think that this is physical lust, as in woman-to-woman? Would she well, you know, with Kate if given the opportunity? I know that she is obsessed with her physique, her feet, and her invisible bra, and we poke at her about getting a room and taking a cold shower, but I wonder how much of it is in jest, and how much of it isn't just a joke.Of course, that is if Milo really is a woman and not a 90-year-old dirty old man. I guess we'll never know.
Uh oh, Milo's getting panicky!miloandjack @Kateplusmy8 Check DM
So the last time she put up the TLC photo on her IG, she ended up getting just over 7K favorites---this took nearly 8 full days to accomplish. Tonight the same photo, put up 5 hours ago, has just over 4K. Does anyone think that it is not pretty much the same people who have favorited again? When she puts up a photo on IG, her "followers" get alerts, right? And so where the F are her other, ummm, 96.8K followers? The fraud that is so obvious here just reeks of desperation. Oh and I stepped away from the computer for about 75 minutes. In that time, 12 new tweets for Kate; in all, I don't she's gotten even 100 fan comments since she first tweeted 6 hours ago. And there's now a grand total of 36 RTs on that tweet. Yeah, Milo, EVERYONE is singing. Not.
Milo must be wetting her pants about now...

Well the good news is now there's video evidence she lets the kids decide the visits instead of just taking them as she should. That would be damning evidence in my court. You're in contempt, done.I have a new cable provider this year and it looks like, oddly, I'm getting a west coast feed of tlc. So it's not airing until 10 here instead of 7. That's a shame as I was hoping to recap it tonight as well as participate in the discussion.

Tweet from one of the Busbys' relatives:Dale Mills @dalepmills 9m9 minutes agoOnly psychos keep their kids hair #charlesmanson #OutDAUGHTEREDHe should have tagged Kate, since she's one of those psychos.

I just can't figure out that relationship, if indeed there is one. I bet, though, that Milo believes that getting to know Kate (not necessarily 'know' in the Biblical sense) can be attributed to synchronicity, coincidences that were just meant to be. One thing is certain. She loves Kate with a passion that transcends time and space.

Whatever interest they may be able to pick up, starting off the season with a clip show I think is a huge mistake. Historically, clip shows for ANY show always perform very poorly. The trade off is they are very cheap to produce so they can afford the low ratings. But the idea that you're going to START with a clip show and expect people to return next week is really pushing their luck.
Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said... 35 Whatever interest they may be able to pick up, starting off the season with a clip show I think is a huge mistake. November 22, 2016 at 7:19 PM Especially since it probably features the same clips that have been shown in the other "looking back episodes". They've probably got enough footage to make an episode of Kate looking back on herself looking back.

I'm watching this show. While they were eating their stuffed peppers I was watching Collin. He was twitching his head a lot. It must have gotten really bad right before he left. He is so drugged up it's not funny. This is one of the saddest things I've ever seen on tv. It's criminal.
Are you doing a recap, admin? If so, I guess this means I should send you a few kegs of Rumspringa. You'll need it, bless your heart!
The Dancing With The Stars finale is so FUN!!! All the returning celebs are having a great time. They all look like they are so happy to be there! And where else would Vanilla Ice and former Texas governor Rick Perry be performing together and having lots of fun doing it!
Siobhan R @SiobhanR111 7m7 minutes agoI see the sad haters r being their sad old selves. Watch #KatePlus8 and see how WONDERFUL this family is! #JOYIsHere @Kateplusmy8 @TLC----No sadness here. I feel sorry for the kids having their embarrassing moments aired for the umpteenth time because their mother wants to reminisce.
Haha, she'smthanking TLC for 10 years, but didn't they dump her for almost 3 of those years? DWTS finale is fantastic! No spoilers though! I know better.
So sad...Colin is not the Colin we all came to love. He is overly compliant, laughs only because his brothers laughed and it is forced. His affect is flat.He is being behaviorally managed by medication in my opinion.So sad :(
Oh, SNAP!TFW asked Hannah if she was going to have organized shelves when she got older. Hannah said she was not going to have a billion kids!Way to go, Hannah!Did anyone see TFW's evil look on her face when she picked up Alexis when she had the messy diaper in the crib? Wow, I thought she was doing to snap, but with the look on her face, she realized she couldn't because the camera was right there. You could really see the demon in her face at that moment.
I still get the East Coast feed on my cable channels but I haven't even changed the channel from DWTS. It's been great so far and why did I love it so much when Vanilla Ice sang "Ice, Ice Baby"!I did take a look at her Twitter party and I must say that attendance is pretty pitiful. I guess she was a little late sending out the invitations. Admin, I have to agree with you about starting out with a clip show. Some curious people may tune in and then tune out when they can't figure out what all the hype was about.
She told Joel, How bad do you want to succeed in life? Why don't you ask yourself that? You have failed miserably as a mother. There is no telling how many times she has grabbed that child over the years and shook him so hard. Collin looks so pitiful. If she will ratchet up Madys arm and shoulder and make her cry very hard, she will do anything to any of those kids.
SiobhanR telling people on Kate's twitter to watch the show, but....if they are fans and are on her twitter, shouldn't they already be watching?
Just because we see Zorro on the kids shoulders, doesn't mean he is alive today. This was filmed a year ago.Zorro out.NEXT!!Bring in the puppies!
She asked Joel again how bad she wants to succeed in life?What is wrong with her?
Tizzie said... 44No sadness here. I feel sorry for the kids having their embarrassing moments aired for the umpteenth time because their mother wants to reminisce----Unfortunately you're giving Kate too much credit. She's not interested in reminiscing - it's about staying on the celebrity Z-list and making a buck without having to get a real job...all at the expense of her children.
What the hell does that mean, succeed in life??He's 12 years old for God sakes. He should be worried about Pop Warner football practice and making sure his science project is done by the end of the next week. He's not thinking about what his life will look like when he is 40.
When the camera was in the laundry room and scanning the notes all around, there was a note there for JON! I couldn't read it but it was there.
I looked at TLC's twitter page and all they seem to be doing is Retweeting almost every tweet Kate tweets.So far they didn't RT any of the fans tweets or tweet any moment or memory whereas when outdaughtered and LPBW was on there were lots of RT of fan tweets and even TLC show some moments from the show.Heck the fact that they only simply RT almost every Kate tweet seem like they really couldn't be bother with the show or episode.

What a dud of a #TweetParty. I would say she maybe got 10% of the traffic she's had before. Mostly old familiar names, so she's not attracting any new viewers. Lots of repeat comments from the #OldFaithfuls. So sparse were the comments that I was able to pretty much get all of Kate's plus a few of the stranger ones.There were no "quotes for a follow" either. And the igloo scenes were in tonight's episode, I saw no mention of the dogs, so clearly they're being saved for later.Sorry if these are repeats of ones already posted, this is how the show looked from Twitter as I didn't (and won't) watch this cretin faking it for the masses.Part IKate Gosselin@Kateplusmy8 31s31 seconds agoThe kids say 'We're SO excited to be back and be able to watch since we don't have school tomorrow!' #KatePlus8 @TLCRight._____Kate Gosselin @Kateplusmy8 1m1 minute agoThe kids are laughing so loud while watching I can't hear! #KatePlus8 @TLCMy guess is she's locked in her bedroom with #NookiePookie and a bottle of vino._____Kate Gosselin@Kateplusmy8 1m1 minute agoI miss THAT baby/toddler life SO much! #KatePlus8 @TLCUh-huh._____Kate Gosselin @Kateplusmy8 34s34 seconds agoMy boys are THE BEST help in the morning ..

Does Kate understand that TLC keeping her on has nothing to do with being supportive, being a family, sticking with her? Absolutely nothing. It's a numbers game, pure and simple. For whatever reason when they crunch the numbers they think it's advantageous to keep her aboard. One day they will run the numbers and it won't add up, and they'll drop her just like that with nary a goodbye. They've done it before, they'll do it again.I think they need to give some serious thought to the good will the network has, if any, and whether Kate is really starting to jeopardize that. But that's really on them to decide, and being supportive of Kate will not be a factor. If I were an investor I would fire any CEO who is factoring in something like that. It's about dollars in dollars out, period. When a show is not profitable in some form, you cut it, period.
So sad...Colin is not the Colin we all came to love. He is overly compliant, laughs only because his brothers laughed and it is forced. His affect is flat.He is being behaviorally managed by medication in my opinion.So sad :(*****************It's incredibly sad that these sheeple find it entertaining to watch it. What the heck is wrong with these people? It just makes you want to bang your head on the wall, trying to figure out why voyeurism is so fascinating to them.What a world.
Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said... 51What the hell does that mean?*****************************It just hit me when I read your pos that sounds like TFW is parroting from her father or an adult in her life when she was much younger. I can't believe with all of her money, resources she is SCARED about buying food when the boys get to be teenagers. TLC paid for that magnificent haul to the bulk store. So what is she so butt hurt about?
@Layla I took a look at the SiobhanR TL and this person like milo literally tweets about nothing but Kate.I almost mistook her for one of Milo's socks because like Milo,it seems she's only on twitter for Kate.
I thought he was in some type of boarding school but it seems it's more like a psych hospital or detention center. He can't leave and no one can visit except for two hours. This is worse than I thought.
No tweets whatsoever from TLC to Kate tonight. I guess they were busy.
Kate tweeted no more chickens. Why have chickens when Collin isn't around to shovel chickensh*t?
You are right that they don't care about supporting Kate, but they also don't care about good will...unless it is tied to ratings. &&&&There is no need for your snide remarks especially when I agree with you. Totally unwarranted. We're having a good discussion here, and I really don't appreciate it. I get it and I completely agree with you, and that's what I was saying. Of course they only care about good will as it relates to ratings, but they do need to think about good will as it relates to ratings.If a viewer is upset with TLC's seemingly supportive attitude of Kate to the point where they won't watch anything on the network at all ever again, they've just lost a viewer for ALL their shows, not just one. Their choices, their actions with Kate could affect the network as a whole with many viewers. This has to be factored in. Why do you think they dump people like the Duggars and Honey Boo Boo, even if they have confidence ratings would still be good? Good will, pure and simple. They can't have a viewer of ANYTHING on their network having morality issues with their programming choices for fear of losing viewers of any show. Good will is much harder to measure in terms of what viewers they are losing and for how long, but they're reckless not to think about it. All the other networks do.Bottom line Kate is not Michael Scott and TLC is not her family or doing what's best for her (only if it's also best for THEM), and I'm embarrassed for her she seems to think they are.
The trend also is to try not to keep kids like this institutionalized for very long, so I'm not sure how long she's going to be able to keep him in an institution if he is as high functioning as he appears. Of interesting note, in CA we're getting rid of all but the most restrictive (level 14) of group homes. On paper anyway. Allegedly, anything less than level 14 will be shut down. It's supposed to start Jan 1, but it's been a shitshow. Long story short, placements like this are going to be going away with the trend being to try to keep kids in family or family-like settings first. That has long been recognized as preferable to group homes.A comment elsewhere mentioned bad things happening in group homes--I hate to say it, yes. It's very common for children to report credible allegations of abuse in group homes.
Was There any mention of Zorro?
Kate is saying anything she wants in these interviews because she has yet to suffer the consequences. She continues to get People articles and tv interviews. Even when the comments on those articles turn against her, they usually turn against Jon too. When TLC canceled her show, it was related to Jon's lawsuit not to what Kate did or said. She has been allowed all along to control the narrative. I feel bad for Colin but I don't believe he will get any visitors on Thanksgiving. I don't think Kate has any interest and I don't think Jon has had time to get a date in court to find out the details. The facility may be operating under Kate's order to not let Jon in even if Jon knows the address. Unfortunately, I see no help for Colin. He has been banished because Kate wants him banished.
She's got cellulite chin.
So is anyone going to tell TFW what "see you next Tuesday" really means?

Jamesvader1194 said... 31I call Bullshit on this one.Maybe one or two but i doubt all 8 Kate Gosselin @Kateplusmy8 3m3 minutes agoThe kids say 'We're SO excited to be back and be able to watch since we don't have school tomorrow!' #KatePlus8 @TLC*******And if it is true, it's very, very sad that watching themselves on tv is the highlight of their vacation.I really do wonder if the tups get that it's not like it's home movie night at the Gosselin home, and that millions of strangers are watching them, too.
Sounds like 10 years with TLC is finally it. Of course, I did not watch so can't wait for the recap. A clip show is more appropriate for a finale show so what's up with TLC starting off this way? Strange. Must be the last gasp.If she said something about concern for feeding her kids as teens, that makes me believe she's at the end of her contract with TLC. Dab, dab.
I really do wonder if the tups get that it's not like it's home movie night at the Gosselin home, and that millions of strangers are watching them, too. $$$If she hasn't been honest with them about what it really means to be on TV and how many people are watching? This is something that they could grow up to really resent. They're going to find out and who knows how any of them will react to it if they feel they have been deceived.
The kids are laughing so loud while watching I can't hear! #KatePlus8 @TLC*******For a moment when I read this, I actually felt sorry for Kate. The need to paint this Norman Rockwell picture for the masses (or few) is really pathetic.At 12, you'd have to strap me down if you wanted me to sit next to my brother and watch home movies with him.
Admin (#80), and if the G kids do resent this decade-long privacy invasion, wait'll they hear that they allegedly took a vote on it every year -- while they were still in diapers. They are a living, breathing science experiment, and it will dawn on each one of them at some point. And now that we see they're not excluded from curb-kicking, it'll be interesting to see how those who rebel end up.
gotyournumberKate said... 41I'm watching this show. While they were eating their stuffed peppers I was watching Collin. He was twitching his head a lot. It must have gotten really bad right before he left. He is so drugged up it's not funny. This is one of the saddest things I've ever seen on tv. It's criminal.*****Thanks for taking one for the team.That must have been hard to watch ;-(
You could really see the demon in her face at that moment.*****Go back and watch when Dr. Glassman tells Kate she doesn't need a boob job. There is a flash of pure fury that comes across her face before she comports herself for the camera.
Still can't believe she STILL dishes their food onto plates from the counter! She is so detached from those kids she can't even sit down at the table and eat with them. And there is Mady, eating at the counter like her mother does. She must think it would be more work and mess to sit the dishes of food on the table and let the kids serve themselves. This is so awful on many levels. I noticed a small, white wooden cross on the window sill above the kitchen sink. For the way she is, why bother? But, I am glad it is there. Maybe one day.
Tucker's Mom (#81), and are we expected to believe that all 7 kids were crammed in her bedroom with her? Surely J and A weren't allowed on the bed, being icky boys. How about the dogs? Was there popcorn with a surprise? And if this Norman Rockwell scene really did take place, how lovely that Mom worked through the entire thing by tweeting with strangers. Just an average struggling single mother, enjoying a night of TV with her kids, watching their own show, and offering live commentary on the whole thing. See you next Tuesday, TFW.
One of the tweets last night was TFW saying what great helpers her boys are. It seems their value to her is tied up in that -- such an odd measure of worth for a child. We sure saw it with C, but whatever he did was still not enough. I wonder if his brothers have had to pick up the slack with his chores. And I wonder if the chickens' disappearance had anything to do with C not being around to tend them.
I just read through her tweets from last night and she seems to be pretty desperate. Basically, the chickens are gone, the kids love to watch themselves, TFW still doesn't quite get that it should be #TLC and not @TLC (and @TLC couldn't be bothered with promoting the new season - sorry Kate but no pictures of you and yours) but TFW did try to kiss TLCs ass A LOT, she didn't watch DWTS at all this season (way to get invited back), And finally, Milo, you really do need to DMmher and tell her what "see you next Tuesday" means. @Kateplusmy8: I'm so thankful for my wild unpredictable wonderful life w my 8 kids,3 dogs,1 bird plus 1 reality tv show! #KatePlus8 @TLC SEE YOU NEXT TUESOr maybe she knows what it means and is calling @TLC a.......
The chickens are gone, just like that??? After all that?? Geez.
Admin (#89), I guess the chickens didn't know how to help her. The kids are probably just grateful they didn't get served as a sammynella supper.
Original T said... 58I wonder what happened to the chicken? Maybe the other kids refused or Colin is gone?******The chickens don't know how to help Kate anymore.Check!Yup, no more chicken boy to do the heavy lifting, so bye-bye chickens.
Shaking my head. Let's not even get into what that teaches kids about following through and being responsible for what you started.Take on a massive project, one that involves living creatures, and put all kinds of time and effort into it then, eh, when you're bored, DROP IT.
This kind of thing always makes me think of TFW talking about what she does with emails she doesn't agree with -- "DELETE!"It goes for chickens and sisters-in-law and and even children. But that pesky ex husband just won't disappear. And I truly think that is the secret to alllll the hate and anger and resentment. She hasn't managed to delete him, and it kills her.
Maybe this is finally the end because, as I said above, she really does seem desperate to let TLC know just how much she loves and appreciates them. Her "wild unpredictable life"? theres nothing unpredictable about her life unless TLC doesn't get the script to her ahead of time. One final thing, in the TLC promo picture that she used on her IG account all the kids are grouped together in twos except for poor Collin and Joel. Joel gets the privilege of standing next to her and Collin Is at the end of the group by himself. Odd that they didn't put Joel and Collin together in the photo shoot and odd that TFW picked this picture to use.
And I truly think that is the secret to alllll the hate and anger and resentment. She hasn't managed to delete him, and it kills her. I think you've "hit the nail on the head".For all those people who believe Jon hasn't/isn't doing anything to try and help his kids, if that were true Kate would not be continually going out of her way to destroy Jon in a very public way. She would just dismiss him as she has done every other person in her life. Nope, he's still a thorn in her side and to Kate, he must be dealt with...
Not a coincidence the chickens are gone and Collin is gone.
Some of the FB fans have noted that Collin appeared heavily medicated as well, so I guess at least the side effects of whatever he's on are noticeable. So TLC never noticed or what? What were they actually told about this child's condition? And more than a handful of the FB faithful also seem to suggest that KATE should be medicated, too (you're so stressed, you need to calm down, can't you enjoy yourself more, etc.). "Chaotic fun" doesn't seem like it's much actual fun for Schmoopy.
If Collin appeared medicated, then he is over-medicated and frankly, that could have been one of CPS' concerns. Hopefully now his meds are at the right dose and with professional counseling, Collin will thrive away from Kate. There is hope because it appears he trusts his therapist to reveal the abuse.
Kate went back to IG last night after the viewing. Pic of Nookie and two of the kids on the sofa in her room, I guess to prove they were actually in there, LOL? And did they have her permission to post? kateplusmy8 Watching our show #KatePlus8 together made us all recall lots of furry family memories! ❤️ #Hannah #Joel #Nanuq We will be back next Tuesday 10/9c on #TLCFor Milo, it was still Q&A time.miloandjack2016 Love how your dogs...#Nanuq here is so affectionate w/all of you! Are all your kids at ease w/dogs now? @kateplusmy8miloandjack2016 Hope you get to enjoy your hobby tomorrow...#SleepingIn. ?? @kateplusmy8 (Doofus already asked this on Twitter, didn't get a reply here either.)And as always, no one understands the implications of having a TV crew in their home. Kate "does it all." Right. Her house is clean because when she's filming, they're paying the cleaning bills.farnaztajAs a mom of 3 (6 YO and twin 4 YO) I LOVE watching you in action! You are amazing! Your organization is perfection! Your house is always clean! How. Do. You. Do. It?! Glad your allowing us back into your home! ❤

Kate Gosselin @Kateplusmy8 11h11 hours agoOmg I want that precious baby in my arms NOW! Wait, I want ALL of them! I'd just kiss kiss kiss... #kateplus8 @TLCMark Hershberger @popdetectiverec@Kateplusmy8 Would a nice guy who loves kids be an acceptable substitute?? I'd love all of those kisses!!!Ugh. Do ya like slaps, too?
Sad but true (#99), whoa, Gladys was actually tweeting after the show? How was she allowed to stay up so late? Maybe we should get a picture of LOM with today's paper. Oh, wait, she doesn't post pictures of her own family -- just hounds TFW for pictures of hers.

FlimsyFlamsy said... 102Yes, she most certainly was. Interesting. I guess he decided, with the holidays and all, she deserved a special treat. She didn't say anything about him serving her popcorn with a surprise, though, so . . . :)
Tamara,Maybe the "it's all good" from Jon the other day means that he does know where Collin is and has maybe already seen him and plans to go Thanksgiving. Maybe his lawyer told him to keep it quiet, but I really believe this mess is going to bust wide open, SOON! And TFW and STEVE, YES, STEVE, is GONNA LOOK BAD! Get your popcorn and ink pens ready, #TLC
Wow. I looked up see you next Tuesday.Wow. She's NUTS! You can't tell me that she doesn't know what that means.
I take it from the comments above that not only Jon and all the family members and helpers who were previously banished, she has also removed the chickens. I'll bet it is no coincidence that the chickens flew the coop when Collin was forced to. Very disturbing to hear that Collin was so medicated that it was apparent to viewers.bm
I watched the repeat episode at midnight.I think the reason some people still love the show is they just take Kate's narrations as the truth. Kate made it seem like she just thought up the igloo and found out how to do it online like that day. She plays the tutorial video and the kids watch it and of course Kate just happens to have 6 of the same rectangular clear bins and a lifetime supply of cooking spray on hand.The twins weren't there (they supposedly had a cyber school snow day so they had to do schoolwork online). Half the sextuplets weren't participating, and the other half were bored after the first level was built. So Kate claims she refueled them with a huge lunch (soup and grilled cheese sandwiches that she called paninis) and they went back out ready to accomplish their very important mission of building an igloo to foster a feeling of teamwork and accomplishment! My guess is Kate had to promise them something in exchange for finishing the filming of the episode.The dinner scene was ridiculous. It seemed so fake. The kids are obviously not actors. They look at the cameras a lot. One of the boys asked something about having dessert and it seemed like he asked something he should normally know if they all ate dinner together on a regular basis. Something was off. I don’t understand why they don’t sit together as a family at the table. I also noticed Kate still has notes posted up for people other than the kids. She had a note in the spare refrigerator (in basement?) to someone named Ana. She actually wrote “To Ana, et al.” So it’s for more than one person. No idea who Ana is. It was a note referring to all the cartons of eggs in the fridge. She also wrote a note to someone else with a weird name (don’t remember what it was). It was posted on a cabinet of some kind. Who are all these people? She still needs helpers?Also, she drove the kids to the bus in the morning and said she comes back to get Collin ready for “school.” So who does she leave Collin with while she drives the others? Does she leave him home alone?Also, Kate had 3 carts at Costco. Did she really fit all that stuff into the BBB with 6 kids in the car? They showed the back of the van with stuff in it but no way did it show 3 carts full in the van. Seems to me the crew had to bring some back in another vehicle, so how is that real life? And the kids have to do all the chores. They had to go in the basement and take inventory of what they had/need from the store. And Kate again said she comes home and sleeps after she takes the kids to school. It’s not like she gets back at 5am. She’s back at maybe 7am. Then has to get Collin ready. Who goes back to sleep at that time unless you’re sick with a flu or something like that? Collin barely said a word in the episode. He was in the igloo at the end. Actually it was about a 1/3 of an igloo. They threw a brand new tarp over it. That’s all I can remember for now…
When I logged on to MSN this morning, there was a picture under "Entertainment", of Kate and the kids. The caption was "The Gosselins 10 Years Later" , and the story was, of course, from People. Boy, does Kate G ever have an "in" with Kate Coyne. I have never seen People put so much effort into promoting anyone.
CC said... 108I watched the repeat episode at midnight._____Nice to know what actually happened from a clear-eyed person. She still has tons of hired help around the house, it remains a mystery to me why her fans don't glom onto that fact. Thanks for sitting through that and posting.
CC (#108), thanks for those details.The other ridiculously fake part of filling 3 carts at Costco is, if it's being filmed, then it's in the show's budget, and is not coming out of TFW's pocket. I don't even care if she was shown paying in cash on camera -- that money will be returned to her. #FakeMomLife
CC said... 108I watched the repeat episode at midnight.********************So she actually admits that she goes back to bed? Meanwhile, the kids are up just as early, go to school all day with a 45 minute commute both ways, come home to do homework and chores. Plus, she obviously has multiple helpers. What the hell does she do all day?? My heart breaks for those children.
Swimgirl (#109), and I bet she saves her actual errands for times when the kids are around, so she can get away from them. I've never, ever gotten the impression that she sincerely enjoys spending time with them.
Yes. Kate actually said sometimes she goes back to bed. I actually think from the way she described her day that she always goes back to bed. Then she had the nerve to say But I don't tell them (the kids) that. I guess she's afraid there will be riots in the Capital if they know she sleeps and then they have to come home and do chores. But they watch the show so they'll hear her say it. She's just stupid I guess.
Just a fyi,when Kate was trending on facebook.I notice that the two other things that were trending were both metallica and something else.The reason i bring this up is because Metallica had over 100k people talking about them and the other trend had 80k people talking about that.Kate only had around 2,000 people that were talking about her.For something that's trending there sure wasn't a whole lot of people talking about her compare to the other 2.Hell the stuff that's trending now all have alot more people talking about those things.
I did watch - Again, with all the notes, who are they for? You really can't remember your daily routine, so you have to write yourself notes and plaster them all over the place?It also showed her saying she had to leave at 2pm to pick up the kids - I call BS on that. Don't they have close to an hour bus ride after school lets out?She spent the whole episode raving about 7 of her kids. She had about 1 sentence about C - they showed her 10 yrs ago saying he was laid back, and her saying today she was totally wrong about that.As for leaving C alone while dropping the kids off - I think that's fine. I leave my 11 and 10 year old alone at home if I'm jetting off to the grocery store for an hour. They're old enough.The Costco shopping trip was totally paid for by TLC. She was grabbing things off the shelves with no thought - and the shelves in her basement? Why does she need approx 10 bottles of detergent? A little overkill if you ask me.One thing I did notice in their filmed scenes, was that she didn't have as much botox as she does now, because when she spoke, she had lines in her forehead. In her recent interviews, the only thing that moves on her face is her mouth.Oh yes Kate - see you next tuesday for sure.
With your cable/satellite provider you can watch tlc episodes on tlcgo.com; so they have last nights Little People Big World episode along with last nights Outdaughtered episode. But not last nights Kate Plus 8. Hmmm, kinda telling don't you think?
I'm feeling sorry, a little, for that fan Em. It's clear now what she was saying about Collin was all true. Em was just a kid, and must have been way out of her depth. She just wanted to be their nanny, not take on the sort of problems even a seasoned parent would struggle to handle. Her bubble really must have been burst when she saw what really goes on in that household. Has she said much lately?
Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said... 116She wasn't tweeting to Kate last night. And I haven't seen any recent posts from her on IG, either. She knows something of the truth, and maybe she knows that Kate's been lying in all these recent interviews.
The chickens really seemed to "belong" to Collin. I'm sorry but I think she is punishing this child for all this. Spilling it all to the press, throwing him and the service providers under the bus flat out accusing them of lying about abuse. And now, the chickens. She got rid of his chickens to teach him a lesson. She is cold, and mentally ill.
Terri Napier @original_tlex 2m2 minutes ago@Kateplusmy8 @TLC Would you consider making a cookbook ?This always makes me LMAO. Her promotional skills are so sophisticated.
Admin (118) I know which fan you are referring to. She has only favorited a few of Kate's tweets from last night. I think she genuinely cares about the kids but it's interesting how Kate hasn't invited her back ever since she appeared on the show. -ajw
What was the reason given for stockpiling three cartloads from Costco? Was it because of the snow? And yes, her BBB does not have that much storage space with all those seats. Bet Steve followed driving her SUV packed to the gills with her loot. Watching Kate shop is not must-see TV, LOL.Boy, she sure hasn't changed with the note writing. We've been saying forever she has a ton of help but her fans on Facebook insists she does it "all alone". Would not be surprised if there is a live-in nanny. I just don't believe she drives those kids to and from school everyday. She did when there were paps, but now I imagine someone else does the driving.In my little world, there are more important things going on these days and I seldom watch TV. I hope many folks have moved on from this predatory excuse of a mother.
She wasn't tweeting to Kate last night. And I haven't seen any recent posts from her on IG, either. She knows something of the truth, and maybe she knows that Kate's been lying in all these recent interviews. &&&&I feel bad for her. I think she has a kind heart and does just want to love the kids, and she must really be torn right now if she knows Kate to be lying.
RE: Jon not marching over the see Colin for Thanksgiving or whenever-My guess is that because Kate is Colin's legal guardian, she is the parent on record and the parent who admitted him and filled out all of his forms, including the HIPAA forms, which detail who may be contacted and to whom they may speak about Colin, that is why Jon is blocked.If you are not listed on those forms, you will not get any information. Not even confirmation of admission.That's from my healthcare experience, not legal, of course ;-)

She got rid of his chickens to teach him a lesson. She is cold, and mentally ill_________________________________________________________And that's her M.O. - in her mind, everything has to be a "lesson about life". Last night, her going on and on about being a success in life. Look at her "teachable moment" about the globe; doing chores makes you disciplined; She's a "contract honourer"; if you work hard in life you will get a bodyguard you can boss around (from RV episode); and on and on and on.And of course, as parents, we all teach our kids life lessons, but children also watch how parents handle all situations. And they've seen her be flat out evil towards their father, and probably many other people in their lives. I think she thinks if she constantly berates them about "life lessons", that it makes her a good parent.
Can anyone tell me WHY and HOW Jon does not know where C is ? And why she is allowed to keep that info from him? There's been so much discussion , I can't seem to wrap my brain around that one thing.
Who goes back to sleep at that time unless you’re sick with a flu or something like that? ******I can't. Once I'm up and changed and/or showered, I'm up.Very occasionally, I might catch a catnap in the afternoon, and that's only if I'm sitting down watching tv.I never "go back to bed" unless I'm sick.
I watched last night as well. You know... For the blog. Anyway, that house was a mess. There is clutter everywhere and notes on everything. There is just random junk in random places and she seems to just buy more furniture to put the junk in or on top of. And her comments about the kids were all glowing except for Colin. He isn't easy going any more according to her. So cold and blatenly obvious. And Colin was not in the preview for the next week - the birthday episode.

Jon's lawyer stated that Kate is ignoring an order to not speak about Colin. How does she not get fined or arrested for this?
After last night's tweetfest, I bet Gladys is hankerin to ask TFW some Thanksgiving dinner details, like close friends do."What's on the TurkeyDay menu? Who eats the most? Kids will surely give thanx for Mom like U! #Gr8ful8#HolidayFun#CWho?

He said the show makes Jon look like the laid-back slob and Kate the OCD perfectionist who has everything in order.Meanwhile, Jon is fastidious and neat.
Nicky (#129), and yet I have a feeling all this "life lesson" stuff is just for the cameras. Remember, this is a woman who let toddlers duke it out rather than get involved in their squabbles. She can't be bothered. So when she blathers on about life and success and hard work, I just tune it all out, because I simply don't buy it. Speaking of Globegate, she behaved like an idiot in that story. She admitted they all condemned an innocent child because "he looked guilty," and then didn't ask the actual guilty child to apologize afterwards. What kind of life lesson was that? That boys are evil when they make a mistake, but girls just get a thank you for admitting it?
Kris (#117), yes, clearly TLC is no longer interested in promoting their former golden girl. How the mighty have fallen.
Kate seems to be putting a lot of negative pressure on Joel now. Will he be her next "target" now that Collin and Jon are gone?
I agree FlimsyFlamsy. She really does think that she is a model parent. And I'm not saying that I am, or that anyone else here thinks they are either. We all screw up, are in bad moods, get frustrated, etc. But she takes up to a level that definitely is scary to me - imagine how it feels to those kids. It's so weird to me that they seem very "immature" for their age, yet she seems to involve them in adult issues - if they don't film, they'll lose their house; your dad dates whores; I wasn't happy in my marriage because I settled, and I'm sure there is more. A very interesting psychological study for sure.Oh - and she's definitely not as clean and organized as she has all her sheeple believe. How many times have we seen chaos - all due to her.
Tucker's Mom said... 127Em did seem so nice and sweet.What was it again that apparently Em spilled about Colin?_____The meds, and possibly why he was taking them. It was never completely clear exactly what she shared with that tweeter, but I am certain about the meds.
Nicky said... 129. . . they've seen her be flat out evil towards their father, and probably many other people in their lives. ____They've seen her flat out CUT OFF without a backward glance people who she said she loved and whom she encouraged THEM to love. Including her parents and their DAD. If that isn't a example she should be wary of presenting, I don't know what would be. How does that qualify as "life lesson"? Does she consider herself "abused" by all of them, or do they just not agree with her? Because, really, if you're going to cut people off every time they don't agree with you, there won't be too many left at the end of your life.
I've just re-read Admin's heart warming Open Letter to the Gosselin children dated November 22, 2009 prior to what was to be the "Final Episode", November 23, 2009.In it she refers to them as, you are permently the "Plus 8". I just wonder if the remaining 7 will be encouraged tomorrow to give a thought to their missing brother. (I just can't get the thought of Collin being separated from his siblings, the only family he has ever known, out of my head.) bm

I have to say, for the most part TLC chooses some really unflattering photos of Kate for their posts on her FB page.
Any numbers on the TLC shows last night?
So ratings are out. Kate's 26th for the night, 890K viewers. Not what you'd call an auspicious start. Outdaughtered (#18) beat her at 9 with 1.012mm viewers. LPBW, at 8 p.m., had almost double Kate's number, 1.606mm and the #8 show of the night.
Ratings are in:890,000 viewers-.26 share.http://www.showbuzzdaily.com/articles/showbuzzdailys-top-150-tuesday-cable-originals-network-finals-11-22-2016.htmlMeanwhile, LPBW(8 pm) got 1.606 million viewers with a .42 share, and Outdaughtered(9 pm) got 1.012 million viewers with a .31 share.
Ratings are in! 890,000. Very, very low for a premier. Little People, Big World at 8pm got 1.606 million. Outdaughtered at 9pm for 1.012 million. Then K+8 at 10 with 890,000. I cannot stop laughing! Last seaseon's premier made news stories for its low ratings, and it got 955,000. I think this season is shaping up to be a lot of fun (for us)!I wonder if Milo is crying #tears in her beers right now.
Hi everyone :o)Just a moldy oldie posting to wish you all a Happy Gobble Gobble Day, and to tell you that last night's ratings have been posted at: Showbuzzdaily.com...It's looking pretty dismal for that looney baffooney!xxxxxxxxx
(I just can't get the thought of Collin being separated from his siblings, the only family he has ever known, out of my head.) bm *****I"m right there with ya, sister. I have a nagging feeling the Colin's program is very difficult, and not at all wrapped in warmth.The only reason I can think of for Colin to be locked away like this is that he was a danger to others, and maybe himself.
Thanks for the ratings, Layla!May they only go down from there.
So, a .26 share means what in layman terms? Bad? Really bad?Thanks for sharing!
Oops, I did my hashtag wrong. It should be #tearsinherbeers. No spaces. Oh, well, hashtags aren't really a part of my life. This is not happy news for Kate, going into Thanksgiving. Her head is on the chopping block, and she knows it. Last night was not only the premiere, but it was a night when most people didn't have to worry about getting up for work or school. The next few weeks are going to be a wild ride. Buckle up!
For someone with plenty of moolah, she has a distinct lack of taste and style. Her furniture is what wealthy people were buying maybe 40 or 50 years ago.******Kate definitely lacks panache and flair. I think her choices are safe, and run towards a country motif.From Kate's posted photos, girlfriend needs to take a paint brush to the boudoir and get rid of the faux finish.
Kate's Fetid Soul said... 150Hi everyone :o)*******Hey, Fetid. LOL at your name!!
I was looking at Kate's Twitter numbers during the show last night, and I don't think she got more than 100 tweets.
@Tucker's Mom (152) I agree,although lets not celebrate just yet.Remember last season started out like this,but halfway through she got back in the millions.Plus like some here said,these looking back episodes don't really gain a whole lot of viewers.I believe the episodes that could get the most viewers is the puppy episode or the kids 12th birthday.
@Layla Even with those ratings,milo would still insist that its good ratings cause that's how desperate she is.
I was hoping for under a million! What a sorry showing for her big return after such a long absence. Of course the fans will blame it on the DWTS finale. Regardless, the G gang is certainly not America's Favorite TV Family. She's not even TLC's favorite anymore. Poor widdle sidepiece...
It's so weird to me that they seem very "immature" for their age-------------------------------I believe it is because they have so little interaction with other children.. Yes, they have school, but that is fairly structured as is their home life. These kids do not know how to make decisions. They only know how to do what they are told..They will be woefully unprepared for the outside world without each other. Kate has cut them off at the knees.
Tucker's Mom said... 157I was looking at Kate's Twitter numbers during the show last night, and I don't think she got more than 100 tweets.November 23, 2016 at 2:07 PM========Her tweet party was dismal. Her core group of die hard fans it would have been a Twitter wake.
110,000 people tuned out from Outdaughtered to her. Well more actually since some probably just tuned it at 10. Just like the tweet Tizzie posted upthread:@TLC So we go from sweet babies, and calm Adam and Danielle... to screaming Kate! I just can't... sorry! #OutDaughtered to #KatePlus8Following them might make it worse because the outdaughtered people seem like genuinely lovely and loving people who manage without screaming and being nasty.
NJGal52 (#162), TFW sure seemed manic last night. I wonder if she woke up with a Twitter hangover this morning. She can't be happy with the numbers.Will she check in with the fans tomorrow?Wasn't she MIA last Thanksgiving and Christmas, or am I misremembering?
Agree the kids seem quite young for their age. In the premier, I saw some of them hop on the Coscto shopping sled and thought that's something 6-year olds would clamor to do.Also, wth with the kids not serving themselves still? Even if you put the pots and pans on the table instead of using serveware, let these tween kids decide what they want and how much of it.The control and laziness is like nothing I've ever seen.
The full episode is available on the KatePlus8 TLC page . Also on the schedule, "Sextuplets Turn 12" is on 10:02 PM is Tuesday, Nov. 29. "New Orleans, Here We Come!" is next Tuesday, Dec. 6 at 10:02 PM. There are a couple of reruns of these shows and that's it so far. I guess there will be a puppy episode and twins' birthday yet to air.
Jamezvader1194 (154),Last season there was some new formula used to calculate ratings. It started about 4 weeks into the season, and suddenly all the cable shows went up by 300-400K. After a few weeks, they all dropped again. I don't foresee that happening again, so it will be interesting to follow the numbers this time. The show would never have gotten over 1M last season without the temporary boost. Time will tell! 7 more weeks to go.
I do agree that the kids seem very young for their ages. I agree that Kate shouldnt be serving them their food still (I find that to be odd. Is she still serving Mady and Cara too?) At the daycare I used to work at the teachers would serve the main meals (such as bread, burger patties, spaghetti) but when it came to the sides such as the fruit or mixed veggies, we would instruct them to take only 2 spoonfuls. These were 4-5 year olds btw. She also still refers to the tups as "little" kids which makes them sound a lot younger than they are. She should just say "younger" kids instead. I don't really think the tups climbing on the cart is that bad because Im sure there are some teens who would do something silly like that. But overall, I admit that I watch Dance Moms from time to time and one of the girls Mackenzie is the same as the tups and seems much more mature than the tups are. So. -ajw
Tucker's Mom (#165), I do think some of the young behavior is due to the iron fist with which TFW runs the household. Although these kids have traveled the world, there is something TFW has done -- maybe not even consciously -- to keep them childlike. She proudly proclaimed, "I'm in charge, and that's never gonna change." Keeping them acting young and semi-helpless has served her well, hasn't it? That's why she's so nuts about babies -- she can have total control.
I don't know how they could possibly expect good ratings for a CLIP SHOW. What were they thinking? And to start off a season this way, huh?Of course that will be the fans' excuse, it was a clip show. Next week is what really matters. See you next Tuesday!
Happy and Safe Thanksgiving Day to all my American "cousins" who are here because they are genuinely concerned about the health and welfare of the Gosselin children.And a belated thank-you to Admin. for the tutorial on the merits of the electoral college.Congratulations everyone who have put politics aside and who are now focusing on the good intention of this blog, the childhoods of the Gosselin children should belong to them not the highest bidder.bm
At the tups age, 12, I was way more independent and in control over my time. I was hanging out with friends and was allowed to spend time away from home if I wanted to.
It really wasn't a clip show tho. It was more of look into what Kate does during the day (showed wake up/bus stop/after school/dinner) with a couple of old clips regarding each tup & how they've changed. Then it was the odd igloo building scenes which didn't really go with the other scenes. It wasn't just Kate sitting there reminiscing, lol.
Congratulations everyone who have put politics aside and who are now focusing on the good intention of this blog, the childhoods of the Gosselin children should belong to them not the highest bidder.bm******Thank you!I totally agree with your sediments.

I'm almost embarrassed to ask this, but what is a "share"?
Tucker's Mom said... 153So, a .26 share means what in layman terms? Bad? Really bad?Thanks for sharing!________________Bad! That's the actual rating/share number. It's based on the number of people watching in the target age range-18 to 49. I believe the highest number is 6. Even with her ugly mug on TV for all those interviews, and all the controversy lately, she can't get even a 3 for the premiere. The show, as we've said before is being watched by pre-teens and teenagers mostly.
Tucker's Mom (#175), you're wrong -- it's unpredictable chaotic fun! Take Costco for instance. You never know what samples they're going to be handing out! And will TFW go back to bed after school drop off or not -- it's anyone's guess! And will TFW instruct her children about what order they should eat their lunches, or let them decide willy-nilly! America is clamoring for this sort of excitement, and you must be jellus hater!
It's so weird to me that they seem very "immature" for their age-------------------------------I believe it is because they have so little interaction with other children.. &&&Well I think they around kids a lot during school hours but maybe not as much as the average kid is on the weekends. It could be that but I also think a lot of it is Kate. One, she doesn't correct them when they are immature. Maturity needs to be taught, and there is not a lot of guidance from her on how to handle tough situations with maturity and grace. Second, she's so immature herself. They can only model what they know and she frequently reacts to every-day life situations like a little child. They're not learning how to be a mature, responsible, respectable adult because Kate's just not. But one example of many--implying your son and his service providers are liars when they report abuse is just immature. Even if that were somehow the case, you don't whine to the press about it. Grow up.
Kristen @LinsteadFan3 31m31 minutes agoCan you please update the K8s Kids section of your website? Love keeping up with the kids but it hasn't been updated since 2013 @Kateplusmy8******You gonna build Kate a deck or sumpin? Cuz otherwise, uh, no.
America is clamoring for this sort of excitement, and you must be jellus hater!*******Well, when the kids graduated from prison plates it was revelatory!
The show, as we've said before is being watched by pre-teens and teenagers mostly.____Most of whom are on the same emotional/maturity level that she is. Like attracts like. This also includes Milo and the sheeple.
I know who isn't in Kate's audience. Real single, divorced mothers who have the maturity to handle co-parenting to the full benefit of their children, no matter how much they might not like their ex.
For someone with plenty of moolah, she has a distinct lack of taste and style. Her furniture is what wealthy people were buying maybe 40 or 50 years ago.-----Didn't she buy that house partially furnished? I know that the window treatments were there when she moved in. The photos were on the property listing when it was for sale.
TLC Stinks (#166), do we know if C was still living at home when they did the 12th birthday episode? It'll be awful if he's not part of it. And yet if he is, his behavior is going to be scrutinized by the viewers -- thanks to TFW exposing his troubles to the world.
I can't see that Milo and the sheeple would use the DWTS excuse for the low ratings. I mean, this is KATE! They would have to admit that DWTS is more popular than Kate's show, and we all know that isn't true! Kate trumps everything, according to them. I think Milo will have to come up with a new PR strategy to get the viewers shaking, drooling and rolling for next week's episode.
PinkTink0526 @PinkTink0526 2h2 hours ago@Kateplusmy8 can we get some of your recipes? Cookbook time?A few dumb sheep are asking for recipes. Go to her website. You can pre-order her cookbook from there! ;) Tell 'em, Milo!No requests yet, though, for frozen Christmas cookies.
I think Kate LOVES it when fans BEG her for recipes and where she got her clothes.We all know someone who has something but won't share, and just gloats.
No requests yet, though, for frozen Christmas cookies.******Well, everyone knows that you dump ingredients into a bread machine and it bakes the cookies, slices them and freezes them.Duh!
Sorry if this has been mentioned, but did last night's show address exactly what happened to Colin?
Tucker's Mom,Since this episode was filmed prior to Collin leaving, it was not mentioned what happened with him (expect that happen in one of the episodes later on). All Kate said about Collin was that she was still trying to figure him out and when referring to an old clip from when Collin was a baby ("he's a laid back kid"), she said laid back would not describe him now. -ajw
Thanks, ajw.I thought maybe TLC would edit in Colin's current situation since it's been plastered all over by his mother.
You gonna build Kate a deck or sumpin? Cuz otherwise, uh, no.=================Well, she has Deckster, her preacher deck. Maybe someone will pay Matt to build the lesbian deck out by the POOL.
Tucker's Mom said...#175Riveting!Kate and her life...not a mystery.**********Ha-Ha! Yes, the only new thing I learned is she fixes lunches in the a.m. now. I was able to sleep last night with that knowledge. ;-)
How can TFW live with herself after sharing with the world that she cannot figure out her kid? I don't care if he was a flipping bank robber. What a horrible violation of his privacy to broadcast that information. She's not talking to a best friend over mimosas -- she's telling the planet. Yet she continues to crow that she's the one taking the high road. It's ridiculous.
Fleecing (#193), TFW has a pool? Funny she hasn't mentioned it. Smart move -- I hear they're real money savers. But I think the real key to financial security is having 3 cars. She should look into that.
I think Kate LOVES it when fans BEG her for recipes and where she got her clothes.=========I forgot about that chicky, the one who was pestering Kate about the dang purple top she wore when barbecuing. Did Kate ever answer her?
I taped the later showing of show and watched this a.m.What really ticked me off was when she was thinking back on each one of the tips when they were babies she had so much to say about each one except when it came to Collin she just sort of skimmed right past him.No wonder this poor boy has problems, he's been being skimmed over his entire life.
Just a few things to add. I taped it and watched this morning. It seemed to me that Alexis was not featured or mentioned as much. And neither was Cara.Also when TFW was talking about the laptop usage, I paused the program and on her list that showed the specific laptop times for the children, the girls got extra time compared to the boys! And of course the other thing I noticed was that the boys still do not have braces and J looked as if he would benefit from them.She is such a disgusting human. I feel so bad for those children having her as a mom.......
She mentioned AFTER taking all the other kids to the bus stop she comes home to get C ready for his day? Does that mean she leaves him home alone and/or sleeping while she's gone or is there a live-in watching over him? Poor child, his chicken are gone, just like him. She must truly miss her slave labor. Notice the kitchen was a mess, with egg holders all over the place. How can Jon not have enough evidence for a court to order a mental evaluation of her?Who cooks rice +? stuffed peppers w/ a side of mashed potatoes? Is Cara the vegetarian calling the shots. The whole family needs a lesson on nutrition - all of their skin, especially Kate's is horrible. I do love that the kids were outside playing on a snow day vs inside playing on tablets or devises, but I wish it was their decision, and not part of the script.
